Fri, 9 Jan, I completed Knockeenatoung as the first of my 600 meter summits in this year of 2009. From here I went onto Greenane west and back down as I was caught for time on that day. Beautiful sunny day but very cold. On the summit is a concrete structure which used to house TV rebroadcast equipment. This picked up BBC and HTV signals from Wales and rebroadcast them to the Caher, Ardfinnan, Clonmel area. This was used in the early eighties. Since it closed I have used this shed as a bivvy on several occasions on my climbs on the Galtys. I approached form the Black road and down to the monument. as an aside I was part of the army team sent in to recover the casualties of that plane crash in Septembe 1976.
